What will happen to Social Security disability benefits in 2016?

Any person who has had to go through the process of applying for Social Security disability benefits likely knows that the system is flawed and in serious need of reform. Applications are denied right away to clear up huge backlogs; appeals can take a long time due to high caseloads for judges; and allegations of fraudulent claims are creating more stress on the already floundering system.

Many people who apply for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits will learn that their initial application has been denied. Unfortunately, this is very common. Some people argue that many of the initial rejections stem from untrained state agency workers. Others believe that the trend in denying initial claims developed as a way of quickly dealing with an enormous backlog in SSDI applications. But no matter why an initial claim is denied, it can be appealed and heard by an administrative judge.

However, it is a complicated system that can be difficult for any person to navigate.
